Are you overwhelmed with personal or relationship stress? Are you encountering issues that hold you back from the quality of life and relationships you desire? Individual therapy is a process that can help you resolve a problem that is holding you back from experiencing the life and/or relationship you desire. It can also be a source for personal growth.
Common Issues People Bring to Individual Therapy Include:
- Difficulty in Relationships or Lack of Close Relationships
- Career Difficulty
- Excessive Fears/ Anxiety
- Depression/ Sadness/ Lack of Motivation
- Anger Issues
- Grief and Loss
- Stress/ Coping with Life Changes
- Self-Esteem/ Confidence Issues
- Physical symptoms that your doctor can't explain.
Research has proven time and again that therapy works. And the best part is- it's more important for you to find someone you are comfortable with versus finding a particular technique that may or may not work for you!
Individual therapy is not just “getting advice”, but learning how to find new solutions and discovering greater freedom to make the choices you want. The therapeutic process may involve learning new skills, trying out new behaviors, working through old issues, grieving, or letting go of things that no longer serve your health or well-being. In therapy, you may also come to recognize the ways in which you inadvertently create or contribute to problems for yourself or others. From this awareness, it becomes possible to move with greater flexibility, resilience, and creativity in the world.
Individual therapy can be a rich and wonderful experience for those who embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth, but it does require effort. A client’s active involvement, honesty and openness are critical to a good outcome. For some, the benefits of individual psychotherapy will be realized quickly. For others, therapy will take longer.
Karen Horney, an early pioneer of psychotherapy, richly describes the aim of therapy as “…. a striving for wholeheartedness: to be without pretense, to be emotionally sincere, to be able to put the whole of oneself into one’s feelings, one’s work, one’s beliefs.” For me, individual therapy is helping people achieve greater wholeness so they can experience better lives and better relationships.
